Main Ingredient : Vegetables
Recipe Type : Dinner

Ingredients :


    3 tbsp. coconut oil
    250g/8.8 oz pumpkin, chopped into 2-3cm cubes.
    3 salam leaves (or 1 bay leaf)
    3 lime leafs (available at most asian food markets, but if you can't get hold of these you can substitute for zest of 1 lime)
    2 lemongrass, knotted
    355ml/12fl oz of water
    120ml/4 fl oz coconut milk
    1 tbsp. fried shallots

    For the spice paste:

    3 garlic cloves
    1 long red chilli, seeded and chopped
    1 large tomato, chopped
    1 lemongrass stalk, roughly chopped
    1 1/2 tbsp. chopped galangal (this is a type of ginger available from Ocado)
    2 tsp. turmeric
    2 tsp. chopped ginger
    3 candle nuts (or macadamias, almonds or brazil nuts)
    3 tsp. grated palm sugar (or maple syrup)
    2 tsp. coriander (cilantro) seeds

Method :
  1. Start by making the spice paste. In Indonesian cooking this is done using a mortar, but an easier and quicker alternative is to use the food processor. Blitz all the ingredients until well combined into a golden yellow paste flecked with chilli and tomato skin.
  2. Heat the coconut oil in a wok over a medium heat and fry the spice paste for 30 seconds. Add the salam leaves (or bay leaf), lemongrass and lime leaves (or zest) and toss for 30 seconds.
  3. Add the chopped pumpkin to the wok and fry for 1 minute, then add the water and simmer until the pumpkin has softened and cooked.
  4. Add the coconut milk and fried shallots and gently simmer for 1 minute, until slightly thickened then serve with steamed rice.
